I'm a Master student of Software Engineering and SDE at Amazon (Alexa Language Technologies). I've done a couple of internships during my studies, including ones at Nvidia (Linux graphics drivers), Microsoft (Office, primarily worked on projects related to MS Word and MS Sway) and Amazon (I work on Text-to-Speech framework for Amazon Polly and Alexa). I've been programming for around 10 years now. I also used to be a Student Teaching Assistant and I find teaching/mentoring extremely motivating - sometimes I'd get introduced to new interesting topics that I'd probably never think of finding out about on my own if it wasn't for the purpose of explaining it to someone else. Sometimes I'd get a completely new perspective on subjects I thought I knew when trying to find a way to present it to someone else. I'd really love to keep learning this way. One of the topics I'm always happy to talk about are the interviews - I've done a fair share of them, most of them in top tech companies and I would love to share what I've observed so far. I'm always up for tackling interesting interview questions, doing mock interviews or just giving resume tips (I got my interviews at Amazon without a referral, so I might know a trick or two to make your resume stand out. :)) Other than that, you can always reach out to me if you have questions related to Java, Python, C, C++, Android, SQL, GIT, Mathematics etc. I try to keep my knowledge and skills up to date and learn something new every day by helping you!

I love exercising my "interview muscle" from time to time, and own a bunch of books on the topic. I find these questions fun to tackle, and I think it's very useful to refresh my knowledge/skill periodically - not only because if you let yourself get rusty on the subject, it can take you significantly longer to prepare for the interviews, but because the essential part of these are the fundamentals of CS.

I love Maths! I've been doing A LOT of Maths during high school, since I went to a school specialized for Maths.
Could've been better

Awesome C++ mentor, really helped me figure out my issues and explained why things were going wrong. Also she stayed to help clean up a few items that showed up after we fixed my initial issue. Incredibly helpful, I would highly recommend!

Very patient and nice, was very helpful. I didn't just learn what I was doing wrong in an instance, but she explained it so I would understand for the future.
